	For data which isn't "plaintext equivalent", NFS
	is adequate and very widespread (;-))

	For plaintext, any replication system without
	encryption with non-online keys is an invitation
	to abuse. We're just fighting the equivalent problem
	at work, which reduces to the "key distribution 
	problem".  This is annoying, as we'd really like
	something less amateur than the ^$%#%$!!! NT scheme.

	As, the hashes are plaintext equivalent: I'd
	prefer to avoid them in favor of Kerberos.
